Windows 2012R2 / Hyper-V / 2 Virtual Machines (2012R2) - which version of PowerChute?

Hello Experts,

I'm running Windows 2012R2.  This server runs Hyper-V, and on it reside 2 Windows 2012 virtual machines.

I need to configure shut down via APC PowerChute software.  So what is the right way to go about this?

APC has PoewrChute for Windows 2012 and also for HyperV.  Which should I implement here?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Real-Timer.

Hi,

ofcourse you can configure in hyper-v manager what the default action should be when the host is shutdown. Default it will save the Virtual Machines, but you can also configure to shutdown the VM's.
Second you have to configure what the startup action of the vm's should be. By default this is only start the vm when it was running on shutdown. But you can choose to always start the VM and also with a delay this is a per VM setting.

Last APC has a Network shutdown tool that understands VM's so you can also use this tool: http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SFPCNS301&tab=software
